A Survivor Story And Our Hopeless(?) Situation
Sometime in June, 23-year-old Ali Hussein Kadhim was lined up in a firing squad by the blood thirsty ISIS terrorist and shot at but by a stroke of luck and miracle, the bullet whizzed past his head and he pretended to have been hit as he fell back into the hole dug for them. That impulsive act saved his life as he lay there playing dead while the blood of his colleagues flowed past him. He claims the image and thoughts of his daughter kept him going as he snuck away and lived on plants for three days while dodging these nefarious terrorists.
Ali, a Shiite Iraqi soldier, was able to identify himself as he played dead in a picture the ISIS terrorists released some days after carrying out their evil act.
ISIS have murdered hundreds of innocent people since they began their bloody quest for whatever it is they are fighting for. News reports show that they are now controlling land as big as the UK with over four million people. I really hope both the ISIS and Boko Haram terrorists would be wiped off the face of the earth, and as quickly as possible. My mum told me she was sent a DVD of some of the atrocities being committed by Boko Haram in the North. The scenes she described to me are too gruesome and horrific to type here and I do not know how our government have refused to acknowledge and actually do something about these demons in guise of religious fanatics. If Boko Haram can take over a whole state then it is only a matter of time before they spread their poisonous tentacles to other states. Where do we go from here?
